MOSCOW, September 25 (Itar-Tass) — Fines should be also imposed on passengers who get in cars with drunk drivers, proposed first deputy chairman of the State Duma's Committee on Constitutional Legislation Vyacheslav Lysakov (United Russia).
There are such sanctions in Japan where fines are imposed not only on drunk drivers, but also on those who get in their cars, he noted. "I think the proposal is rather interesting. It should not be removed from the agenda," he said.
Lysakov also suggested considering the idea to return an admissible minimal level of alcohol detected in blood to prevent abuses of traffic inspectors and make the law just. But is not permission to drink, he emphasized.
He cited the example of Norway where the law is rather severe in the area, but allows a very low level (0.2) of alcohol content in blood.
Earlier, United Russia's leader in the Duma Andrei Vorobyov said that the party's members would suggest more severe measures against drunk drivers. They propose to impose no lower than 100,000-rouble fines for driving in a drunken state and a driving ban for a long period or forever for the second violation. Vorobyov does not rule out that a criminal case may be opened against a person who is repeatedly detained for driving in a drunken state, even if there are no victims.
